( July 2012) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message) Around 1980, Steve Leach returned to Europe. [31] In 1982, he appeared as singer and guitarist on an album, Women and Sports, by the band Clean, Athletic & Talented (C.A.T.), co-writing their single "I Love To Touch Young Girls". [4] He met Elisabeth Wold in a blues bar in Oslo, Norway, and adopted her surname after she became his second wife. For a time in the early 1980s, he lived in London, and then with Elisabeth in Skelmersdale, England, which biographer Wright notes is the location of a major Transcendental Meditation movement center. [32] He later claimed to have run a recording studio in Europe before selling it. [33]

In an interview with an Australian magazine, Wold attributed much of his unlikely success to his cheap and weather-beaten guitar, "The Trance Wonder" and reveals the guitar's mojo might come from supernatural sources. When he was four years old, his parents split up and he continued to live with his mother. He claimed that as a child he was taught to play the guitar by K. C. Douglas, who worked at his grandfather's garage, and later realised that he had been taught the blues. [7] Douglas wrote the song " Mercury Blues" and had played with Tommy Johnson in the early 1940s. [17] His mother remarried, to a Korean War veteran who Wold characterized as abusive, and, at the age of about 13, Wold claimed that he left home following a violent confrontation with his stepfather. [18] On 16 August 2014 he was the headline act at Beautiful Days in Honiton, Devon, and on the 24 August he headlined at 'Victorious Festival' in Southsea, Portsmouth, England.
